§ 42. Air-Commodore Harvey
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General if he is aware that food parcels sent from 212 Australia, addressed to homes in this country, have been delivered to Czechoslovakia, Belgium and Holland: and how this has happened.
§ The Assistant Postmaster-General (Mr. Burke)
I have no evidence that parcels posted in Australia to persons in this country have been diverted from their proper addressees; but if the hon. and gallant Member will supply me with details I will gladly have inquiry made.
§ Air-Commodore Harvey
Is the Assistant Postmaster-General aware that this matter was widely reported in all the national Press just before Christmas? Perhaps he will make further inquiries to see if it is a fact?
